It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing in Salmon Arm Hospital, of Coralie Tolley, who was taken from us far too soon at the age of 60, after a courageous battle against cancer. Coralie was pre-deceased in 2011 by her mother, Beatrice Cameron, in 2003 by her brother Byam Jr.(Margaret) and in 1996 by her father Byam Cameron Sr. She has left behind her son Matt Tolley, his wife Kirsten and their son Cameron of Penticton, and her daughter Jenna Roberts, also of Penticton, as well as her partner, Larry Fitzpatrick of Salmon Arm who steadfastly led the bedside vigil during her last weeks and was a source of great comfort. She is also survived by her sister Bonnie (Paul) from Gibsons and her brother Alan (Melissa) from Abbotsford. Other family members who mourn her include: nieces Leigh-Anne Cameron (Rigo) of Ladner, Alison Primerano (Mike) of Vancouver, Crystal Cameron of Vancouver as well as Bella and Sasha Cameron of Abbotsford; nephews Victor Cameron (Heather) from Vancouver and Mackenzie Cameron of Abbotsford, and grand-niece Emily Primerano and grand-nephew Vin Primerano of Vancouver; as well as her loving cousins. Born and raised in Calgary, Coralie spent her adolescence in Port Coquitlam. Coralie began a career in banking in Vancouver before embarking on her Salmon Arm adventure where she thrived as a financial consultant with Edward Jones. Coralie became a noted and well-respected businesswoman in Salmon Arm and organized many charitable events in her community. Coralie loved to travel, and over the last few years she visited several exotic places. Coralie was kind, generous, passionate and loving. She adored her family, her friends, her many cats and the music of U2. Coralie’s special bond with her cats was demonstrated when her cat fizzy came to be with her in the hospital, and stayed with her until the end. In lieu of flowers, we would encourage those wishing to make a contribution, to contribute to the Salmon Arm SPCA, 5850 Auto Road SE
Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 2X2,  in honour of the special bond that Coralie had with her animals and community. A celebration of her life will take place at 2:30 pm on Saturday, October 14 at Predator Ridge, and all her knew her are welcome.

 

 

 

Goodings, Lloyd Forrester

July 13, 1919 – September 25, 2017
at the age of 98 years

Lloyd passed away peacefully in Salmon Arm, at the age of 98.  He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 68 years, June and is survived by the rest of his loving family, son Warren in Switzerland, daughter Jenni Butler in Blind Bay BC, two grandsons Brent and Colin and two great grandchildren, Hailey and Nicholas, all in Ontario.  Lloyd was born in Toronto, lived 60 years in West Vancouver, BC and had only recently moved to Salmon Arm.  He served in the Canadian Army during WW11, and made his career of 41 years with Shell Canada and in his retirement enjoyed boating, golfing and became quite an accomplished artist (although he wouldn’t say so).  The family would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Mount Ida Mews for the care and kindness they provided to Lloyd in the year and a half he was there.  No service is planned at this time.  If anyone would care to make a donation in Lloyd’s memory to the Shuswap Hospice Society, 781 Marine Park Dr #4, Salmon Arm, BC V1E 2W7 it would be most appreciated
